Motor vehicles produce carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (unburned, partially burned, cracked), nitrogen oxides and sulfur compounds. The largest amount of CO is produced by motor vehicles. Due to the addition of tetraethyl lead in gasoline, the lead is eliminated with the exhaust gases, which are deposited on plants and soil (pollution). Although the organism’s behaviour to pollution depends on many factors such as health, sex, etc. [4], we have proposed in this paper to highlight a small part of the structural transformation in Platanus sp. and Tilia sp. petioles and leaves induced by pollution caused by motor vehicles. Thus, we have discovered a tissue reduction in the organs harvested from the polluted area compared with those collected from the unpolluted area.
